Floral Crochet Blanket Patterns

I’ve seen so many gorgeous floral crochet blanket patterns in my life.   Each year for Christmas, we would receive a blanket that my Grandmother lovingly crocheted for us.  The colors and patterns were always different and I always admired the time and attention she put into each one.  These crocheted blankets are gifts that I’ll treasure for the rest of my life and then pass them down to my children so they can enjoy them.

While there are lots of different crochet patterns, I have always loved floral crochet blanket patterns the best. They are usually multi-colored and that always lifts my spirits. And, of course, there are a lot of things that you can do with floral crocheted blocks besides make a quilt with them. I love potholders and heat pads and even lap warmers with crochet flowers.
